Biogeochemistry is the science of the processes that govern the distribution of the elements throughout the Earth system. We focus in particular on those that control the transfer of elements between various environments. These are often related to climate, such as the uptake of CO2 by the land biosphere and the oceans, and to biology, for example the availability of nutrients in the ocean. Biogeochemistry is a highly interdisciplinary science, involving biology, chemistry, oceanography and geology, and deals with issues unfolding across several temporal and spatial scales. Our science relies on model simulations as well as field and experimental data. (Foto: Emil Jeansson)
